I don't know of any REIT preferreds that pay qualified dividends. As a rule the common stock dividends are not qualified either, except some of the dividend may be return of capital that is not taxed.

You can find qualified bank preferreds; however, I would be careful as they may not have to pay a dividend for 5 yrs. These usually have a maturity date and the missed dividends must be paid at that time. I do not buy these so take my statements with a grain of salt.
